And people say stoners are lazy. After marijuana fans in Colorado — which recently legalized the drug — repeatedly kept stealing the 420 mile marker on Interstate 70, the Department of Transportation gave up and put up a 419.99 marker instead. “420,” of course,” is a number associated with pot-smoking culture, and Colorado is one of the few states with a highway long enough to need a 420 marker, so it’s not like there’s tons of these bad boys to rip off. ”Obviously people steal these signs,” said CDOT spokesperson Amy Ford. “In the past, if a sign was stolen too much, we wouldn’t replace it. This is sort of an innovative way for us to keep the sign there.” [Denver Post]
On last night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” during the segment in which Andy Cohen’s celeb guest demonstrates their special talent, Whoopi Goldberg showed Andy and actress Zoe Saldana how to roll a joint. You know, of oregano. Or tobacco. Pick your poison! Anyway, Whoopi was probably feeling the pressure of a time limit because her doobie broke midway through. Rolling a tight, fat joint means taking your time, man. A producer signaling to go to commercial would totally harsh my mellow too.
Oh man, I better call up all my high school boyfriends and tell them the news before it’s too late. Actually, on second thought, I’ll let them suss this one out for themselves. According to experts (yeah, you heard me, experts!!), regular marijuana use could be to blame for a hormonal imbalance leading to excessive breast tissue in men. Keep reading »
These suspected drug dealers got high. Really high. But the marijuana they allegedly hoped to deliver won’t be getting anyone high. Read more on Huffington Post…
Last night, MTV held their Euro version of the VMAs, called the EMAs — the purpose of which I don’t understand, as the same damn people win — in Amsterdam. After Miley Cyrus won the award for Best Video, for the Terry Richardson-directed “Wrecking Ball,” she celebrated by lighting a joint on stage. Because it’s Amsterdam! And Miley is in her “Look at meeeeee! I’m so craaaaazy and edddddgyyyyy and I smoke WEEEEEED” phase of life, which I also went through around the same age so I can’t hate too much. Anyway, unless Miley is smoking 15 joints a day like Lady Gaga, I am not impressed.
“I was smoking 15 joints a day. No tobacco. A day. It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip. I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself and then sleeping it off and then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was. … It wasn’t until I was with Marina and she said, ‘Okay you’re coming to my house, no television, no computer, no marijuana, no nothing, no food. For three days, art only. You eat only art. I cold-turkeyed. For weeks and weeks, I didn’t smoke at all.”
Perhaps kicked is the wrong word. Lady Gaga explained in a new interview with Attitude how she was able to significantly decrease her pot use after she developed a MAJOR habit following an injury. (She still smokes “for fun.”) What an interesting and unique approach! Of course neither Lady Gaga nor Marina Abramovic would follow the usual 12 Steps. Eating art is so much more expressive. By “eating” I assume Gaga means she and Marina made art, became one with it, so to speak, rather than actually ingesting paint and canvas and whatever else. Check out the video above for the full scoop on Lady Gaga and Marina Abramovic’s guide to breaking up with Mary Jane. [Celebuzz]
Charlie Hunnam, the newly announced star playing the role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey”, was spotted wearing a shirt that really gave a thumbs up to marijuana; the shirt said “Alternative Herbal Health Services”. Obviously supporting medicinal marijuana; is Hunnam a fan of the green? Read more at Celeb Dirty Laundry…
There’s a buzz happening in Beverly Hills over a group of women who call themselves the “Marijuana Moms.”
Many of the members of this loosely-knit group of pot-smoking parents smoke the wacky weed in order to relax or cope with chronic pain. In addition, they meet regularly for lavish dinners where the herb is a key ingredient in dishes like cannabis leaf salad, chicken fried in cannabis oil and marijuana milk shakes, Orange News UK reported.
Cheryl Shuman, a 53-year-old mother of two, said the group’s joint mission is to show that smoking marijuana makes them better parents and better wives. Read more on Huffington Post…
